whats the pros and cons on these two units . i know eclipses are better but i need a detachable face i know the eclipse has the secerity thing that they wont work if stolen but it wont stop them from breaking your window and messing up your dash so its either the pioneer deh-p860mp or the kenwood xxv-01 any input will help big time

I own both of them and you really cant go wrong with either. Right now i have a Kenwood XXV-01D 25th Anniverary Head Unit in my SUV and its been in there for 1 month. I bought if from Myer-Emco which is a Authorized Dealer and i got the extended 2 year warranty which cost an additional $60. It is in mint condition with no scratches and barely used. I paid $499 plus $59.99 plus tax for the whole package and im willing to sell it to you for $500 out the door shipped if you are interested. It is one hell of a HU but i have a Alpine CDA-7878 that im gonna install in my car and i also have a Pioneer Premier 860 which i also have my other car. Excellant Head Units with endless options. Let me know

well would you want to hook a brother up with a kenwood? Well to give you advice for the HU's. Both have some amazing features but one definite plus i see from the pioneer is that i believe it has the 13 band eq. This is a great option for going active. Your stuck with the 5 band on the kenwood. Well go to the shop and see which one you like the best. But i wasnt even joking about hooking a brother up. PM if you can?

i will let you know if i go with the kenwood i cant get 2 of them just one so i got some thinking to do i just wish my eclipse cd8443 had a removeable faceplate i love the thing but i seen so guy tying to get in my ride at walmart the other day as soon as i yelled and ran after him he took off and got in a car peeled out of there almost lost my stuff thats why i sold my eclipse and now have to replace it

hahaha i hear most of those stories happening at wal marts. I had a 8445 and sold it because it didnt have a detach face. Jeeze where i live, you leave your car for 10 minutes somewhere and its on cinderblocks by the time you get back. Well i think you would be pleased with both of those choices. It just depends what you want your future setup to be. Yeah please just PM me about it and lets see what we can do?

The XXV-01D has a 4-band PEQ - not 5.
It is independently adjustable for the front and rear outputs, though. :)

After owning the 860, and selling and playing with lots of XXV-01D's I reccomend getting the Kenwood. My only major problem with it is (suprisingly) lack of buttons and how little the volume knob sticks out. As long as you adjust it while you aren't moving it's no big deal though.

Im gonna be selling my Hardly used Kenwood XXV-01D. Again i bought this at Myer-Emco which is a authorized dealer and it was purchased a month ago and im getting it removed tommorow by the dealer and putting in my Premier 860 back in. Its in exactly the same shape i bought it. FLAWLESS. It includes everything that it came with in original box and ive also purchased an extra 2 year warranty thru the dealer for an extra $60.00 so it cost me $560.00 total. Im willing to sell this unit with everything included for $450.00 out the door. I have perfect feedback on EBAY and my username is suleman36 so anyone interested can shoot me a email at [email protected] and i will send pictures. Thanks

Since this isn't your thread, suleman, I'll hope this won't be considered thread dumping but from what I can gather by looking around online and making a couple of phone calls (nationwide free long-distance FTW!) the additional warranty that you purchased through Myer-Emco isn't transferable. Additionally the manufacturer warranty is only valid for the original purchaser - so you'll essentially be selling an un-warrantied XXV-01D. Whether or not the particular unit you have is flawless and in BNIB condition isn't in question (I have no reasons to doubt that it is) but you're going to have a tough time selling a used unit with no warranty coverage at that price considering you can get it for that BNIB from Crutchfield with a valid 2yr Kenwood-backed warranty.

Just my $0.02.

I'll wish you the best of luck selling it, guy. I already own one so I don't think I need to buy another one at the moment...
Thanks for the offer, though!

Try posting it in the Forsale section, rather than taking up someone elses thread.

I own the pioneer and like having the 13 band eq on it. It really has come in handy for tuning my system. It sounds good, and I like the display. i have always had pioneers because I have had nothing but good luck with them. There are alot of features that I have not had time to tinker with but I am pretty sure you would be happy with the unit.

I recommend both. I do however prefer the 13 Band eq since i dont use an external processor or anything. That really fine tunes your system just the way you want it to sound. The Kenwood has 4 band eq but still manages to put it out excellant sound. The Kenwood is also HD Radio Ready and IPOD ready. So that is the 2 main things that stand out.

dimebag, the kenwood screen is better in my opinion but i think the pioneer is good enough for most.

i just started looking into that kenwood unit and its really nice but i would never choose a kenwood over a pioneer, i dont know what i would pick over the 860 and 960, their my favorite units
